Li'l Annie Oakley?

The campaign that can't shoot straight.

LAND O'LAKES - Katherine Harris was a pro with the .38-special, drilling holes through the center of a person-shaped paper target.

But the congresswoman's campaign staff missed the mark at Saturday's gun range photo op, said a local Republican Party official who organized the event.

Pasco County Republican Executive Committee chairman Bill Bunting fumed after Chris Ingram, the communications director for Harris' U.S. Senate campaign, tried to block photographers and television crews from taking pictures of Harris firing away.

. . .

Journalists had been invited to cover the event at the Hallelujah Land Ranch, but Ingram wanted to limit photos to a news conference after Harris finished target practice.
